- Brehon Laws - 1,826 words
Brehon Laws Passed down for centuries, the Brehon Laws have made it to the present day. Although no longer in practice, the Brehon Laws give us a glimpse of what things were like in Ireland centuries and centuries ago. The actual technical term for the law tracts is Fenechas, which basically means the law of the Freemen. These laws are probably the oldest European laws that we know of. They were originally composed in poetic verse and were memorized by the Filid. Years later they were written down and preserved in several books of law, such as the Senchus Mor, the Book of Acaill, and the Uraiccecht Becc. The Brehon Laws are believed to have existed as early as the common Celtic Period (c. 10 ...

- Commentary On The Poem Of The Cid - 1,711 words
Commentary On The Poem Of The Cid Chris Irwin Commentary on Poem of the Cid Poetry played a vital role in the dissemination of information during the Crusade period. It provided a compact, easily memorized way of spreading news in a time bereft of the benefit of mass printing. According to Michael Routledge, who penned a chapter on Crusade songs and poetry in The Oxford Illustrated History of the Crusades, poetry was not only a way of recording and spreading news of current events, but also served to record and extoll the virtues and values of the ruling Medieval aristocracy. These values included commitment to one's lord, and an acceptance of the feudal duties of auxilium (armed help in tim ...

- Dylan Thomas And Death Shall Have No Dominion - 1,055 words
Dylan Thomas - And Death Shall Have No Dominion The Author and His Times When, in 1939, W. H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood set sail for the United States, the so-called 'All the fun' age ended. Auden's generation of poets' expectations came to nothing after the end of the Spanish Civil War, and they, disillusioned, left the European continent for good. In the late 1930s the school of Surrealism reached England, and Dylan Thomas was one of the few British authors of the time who were followers of this new trend in the arts. He shared the Surrealist interest in the great abstracts of Love and Death, and composed most of his work according to the rules of Surrealism. His first two volumes, E ...

- Evolution Of Rap Music - 2,575 words
... Signed: THE EVOLUTION OF RAP MUSIC Rap is a form of urban music, which emerged from the hip-hop movement of the South Bronx, New York, in the early 1970s. The hip-hop culture was comprised of the popular street activities of African-American youth during the 1970s such as: styles of language, street-slang colloquialisms, graffiti, break dancing, music and their colourful attitude and fashion. Rap music is therefor a subculture to the hip-hop movement, or what many describe as the soundtrack to accompany the other facets of the hip-hop culture . This means that any changes that take place within the hip-hop culture itself will be reflected in the subculture of rap music. Since the 1970s ...

- How The Holocaust Affected Its Jewish Victims - 2,178 words
... y. Some of the Jews were put in different ranks, some as spies, some as thieves. Some of the spies were to report on family members and friends, betraying them, and even leading to their own demises. Why they did it was obvious. Either they were told they themselves would be killed, or their family or friends would be killed. And they actually trusted the word of a Nazi. Art from the Ashes Although much of the Holocaust had an increasingly negative effect on its victims, it also caused inspiration through the strength survivors gained from it. One of the most famous Holocaust writers was Elie Weisel. He was born in Sighet, Transylvania, in 1928. Weisel's younger sister and mother were se ...

- The Battle On March 9, 1862, Between The Uss Monitor And The - 1,213 words
The battle on March 9, 1862, between the USS Monitor and the CSS Merrimack, officially the CSS Virginia, is one of the most revolutionary naval battles in world history.

To prevent the Confederate Navy from using her against them, the Union Navy scuttled her. The Confederates, however, raised the ship from the shallow floor of the ocean and began making some major modifications. Confederate engineers cut the hull do ...

- The Catacombs And Christian Persecutions - 782 words
The Catacombs and Christian Persecutions The Catacombs and Christian Persecutions The catacombs are the ancient underground cemeteries used by the Christians and the Jewish people in Rome. The Christian catacombs began in the second century and the hollowing out continued until the first half of the fifth century. In the beginning they were only burial places, but later they gathered to celebrate their funeral rites, and the anniversaries of the saints and of the dead.

After the persecutions they became real shrines of the saints and held centuries of relics of Christians from ...
